The network, which carries ‘Uplifting’ family friendly content, airs in 67 millions across the U.S.
“As a top family-friendly network, we are deeply concerned for the families that are potentially affected by these disturbing allegations surrounding actor Stephen Collins,” Charley Humbard, president & CEO, UP said in a statement. “‘7th Heaven’ has been a beloved family show and a fan-favorite on our network. We have made the decision to remove the series from our schedule effective at 5 p.m. ET today. We will continue to monitor the situation and listen carefully to our viewers. Replacing ‘7th Heaven’ tonight will be ‘Supernanny,’ a series dedicated to bringing families together.”
Collins, who played a pastor in the long-running series, resigned from SAG-AFTRA’s board on Tuesday after being fired from Seth MacFarlane’s “Ted 2.”
TMZ posted an alleged confession of the actor discussing lewd acts with children ages 10 and 12 years old.
A spokesman for the actor could not be reached for comment.
